Cardboard Tube Flowers
Here's an example of a really crazy, cool one!
We had a freak hailstorm one afternoon last week, so it was the perfect time for the girls and I to do an indoor activity. This is a great craft for all ages - my 13 year old enjoyed mixing up all the craft paint colours, and my 4 year old sat for in a chair for at least half an hour carefully painting her toilet paper petals with a little paintbrush. After they were painted, we let them dry overnight, pinched them & glued them into five petal flower shapes, poked a hole in the top petal, and strung them on a piece of ribbon. Oh yes, we also painted a sheet of corrugated cardboard, cut it into circles, and glued them onto the flower for the centre.
It was so stinkin' easy, fun, and FREE! And with the bizarre temperamental weather we've had lately it's nice to have a few flowers to brighten the doorway.
